I wanted to mention that I got accepted to present at the National EHDI (Early Hearing Detection and Intervention) conference in New Orleans!! It's Feb 25th-26th and I couldn't be more excited! There's a amazing woman named Janet DesGeorges who has a daughter who is hard of hearing, like Anna. Janet is Hands & Voices Outreach Director Executive Director, Colorado Families for Hands & Voices. Here's her bio. We've known each other since I think 2002 when I first presented for EHDI in Washington, D.C. and have always talked of getting together to present. Well, we're now getting our chance. We will be talking about our kids with mild/moderate hearing loss and what they need or how their challenges are different. Janet is really my idol and I hope to accomplish what she has with her daughter and what she's managed to do from "just being a parent"!! Just a shame we're going to miss Mardi Gras!!
